Organic Cat Food is a Healthier Choice
Try Homemade Cat Food Recipes
Organic cat food is better for reducing the risk of pet food allergy. Healthy cat food does not contain chemicals, pesticides, and additives or fillers. Homemade cat food recipes focus on healthy organic ingredients and will help eliminate cat food allergies.
Provide your cat with organic cat food and ensure a healthier pet. Recent recalls on several trusted brands of commercial pet food created a real concern over the harm these heavily processed foods can cause to our family pets.
But the dangers of commercially manufactured pet foods were evident long before these devastating animal tragedies.
Reduce Cat Food Allergies and Improve Your Cat's Health
In 1996, the American Animal Protection Institute published a report containing startling information about food manufacturing practices in the pet food industry. According to their findings,
'pet food manufacturers fail to mention that meat by-products, digests (or animal tissue broken down by chemical enzymatic hydrolysis) and meals are also filled with other substances'
- such as cancerous material cut away from the carcass, styrofoam packaging containing spoiled meat from supermarkets, ear tags, spoiled slaughter meat, road kill and downer animals (which are those that collapse and die from unknown causes).
Aside from the risks of contamination, commercial pet foods are made of ingredients that contain all sorts of chemicals, including artificial flavouring, pesticides, and hormones.
Residue from these dangerous chemicals has been proven to slow brain development in small children, so it is no wonder the effects can be just as harmful to your favourite feline. Additionally, pet food allergies are commonly linked to the commercial grade foods that contain additives that are not organic and that are not nutritional or beneficial for pets (but are a cheap filler for the commercial pet food producers).
To protect their beloved cats, many owners are opting for organically produced cat food and treats. Those who have switched their cats to an organic cat food diet have found that their pet is happier, healthier, and more active.
Benefits of Organic, Healthy Cat Food
The benefits of organic cat food are actually quite similar to the benefits humans receive from an organic diet:
And organic food is not just better for your cat, it benefits the entire planet. Organic farming eliminates chemicals and implements natural cultivation, practices that lower pollution in the air, soil, and water.
Organically produced cat food is made with wholesome ingredients of the highest quality. The meats, vegetables, and fruits that are put into these foods are good enough for human consumption, so it's no wonder thousands of cat owners are switching to organic food.
